Animals in Modern Life
Dry ERPI film about the various uses of animals by human beings. There is a great variety here of animals and animal products shown, but they are presented in a seemingly random order, without rhyme or reason. Kids probably did a lot of fidgeting during this sort of film.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.

The magic of stock footage.
This is a pretty standard documentary about how animals are used for many uses in America. This film however, is totally on the cheap side as it relies on a LOT of stock footage. Even though this was made in 1937, there's clearly stock footage from earlier then that, from the late 1920's in my estimation. No sweeping music, just the narrator talking, and pretty basic images make for a somewhat blah curiousity.
